Disgrace TV personality Rolf Harris will be released from Prison on Friday.
Harris, 87, who is originally from Australia but resides in Berkshire, England, is due to appear in court on indecent assault charges next week. The trial is for offences committed between 1971 and 1983 involving teenage girls.
In March 2013 Harris was one of 12 people arrested during Operation Yewtree for questioning regarding historical allegations of sexual offences. There was no link to Jimmy Saville during those investigations.
Despite the Aussie star denying all allegations, he was sentenced to five years and nine months in prison, and is being held in HM Prison Stafford in England.
Harris sprang to fame in the 1960s with his ability to create amazing artwork using a household paint brush in front of live audiences.
He created the character “Jake the Peg” who had three legs and released a single of the same name. Over the decades he released 48 singles and 32 albums with hits such as “Sun Arise” and “Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport”. His biggest success was the single “Two Little Boys” released in 1969, which hit the number one spot in the UK.
He also played a wide variety of unusual instruments including the Wobble Board, which he is credited with inventing. He played a Didgeridoo, an aboriginal instrument and the Stylophone, which he advertised on TV for some time.
He was well known for his animal shows which featured rescuing and caring for a variety of creatures and following operations or treatment of sick animals.
People loved Rolf Harris and many to this day refuse to believe that he could be responsible for the crimes he is alleged to have committed.
Harris was also an Australian swimming champion between 1946 and 1952 over a variety of distances and strokes.
